500ml bottle, 4.8 % abv, kindly shared by djoeye. A warm golden body under a filmy layer, clingy lacing. Doughy nose, hints of fruit. Doughy flavours as well joined by a pineapple bite, mid-sweet. Vague malt-fruity ending. Rounded mouth feel. Fair enough. (Rating session with Finn and djoeye, Tromsø 25.09.2017). Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2017

Multiple samples at the brewpub over the years, most recently in Dec. 2015: Hazy brick-rust appearance. Clingy and tight eggshell head. Restrained aromas of toasted hay and breadcrust with hints of plum and wax. Fairly soapy, as well. Soft and fluffy carbonation. Flimsy body. Deep maltiness unfolds with rich breadcrust flavors right out of the gate alongside a subtle and well-integrated plumlike twang. Waxy slickness sneaks in, however, and negates the toasty dextrins. Residual sugars emerge in the form of raisiny fruitiness and lend just enough depth to round out the body, though the malt comes across as rudimentary and papery / damp haylike at times. Malt does show flashes of sophistication, though, as the Munich and Caramel interplay reveals a pecanlike earthiness. Finishes papery with some plum jelly and minimal Spalt-derived woodiness from the scant hop presence. These later batches are pretty much how I remember this tasting in the past. The potential is certainly here, and thankfully there is no diacetyl or DMS, but the execution comes up short. A mostly basic example. hawanna (3344) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2015

Draught at the brewery. Dark gold to orange, cloudy, with a tall, airy head. Slightly yeasty nose, oranges, biscuits, some honey and pineapple. Doughy and a bit worty, oranges, peaches, melon, pineapple. Nice fruitiness. Decent. Not great, but pretty solid, unlike the pils. Soft, herbal, prickly bitterness. Better than they have been doing lately, according to the recent ratings.
